Bahia Rica fishing lodge is a beautiful place with friendly owners. Upon our arrival , we saw the nature, monkeys in the trees and hammocks all over the field . We loved the night bioluminescent kayak with our guide. Vigdis made ​​very good meal. Thank you again for this magical place .

Vigdis and I were emailing over the week prior to our visit, which initially was supposed to be only for the nighttime bioluminescent kayak tour and not a stay in the lodge. But we had car problems that required us to extend our trip. Vigdis was so nice and accommodating in helping us rearrange and not feel stressed that our... More

We stayed in the Bahia Rica Jungle lodge for our very last night in Costa Rica, what a great stay it was! We had the lodge to ourselves and it was so peaceful. In the middle of the jungle, no neighbours only wildlife. We slept extremely well, even taking an unexpected nap on their hammocks after only being there for... More

I had spent one week with with Thomas and Vigdis and only thing I can complain is the pain in my arms from lifting fish after fish. Good equipment, and passion for fishing ensures you get the fish you are after than there is always the surprisingly tasty food package prepared by Vigdis when you are tired. First day we... More

First off, I want to say that Vigdis and Thomas are amazing hosts and really made our stay there a joy! We stayed two nights total, one on the property, and one on a nearby island in hammocks. The one night on their property we stayed in what I have to call a tree house... it was literally made out... More

We spent two wonderful days in the house above the cozy little bay with the picturesque rock. The reason to come here was the bioluminescence in the gulf of Nicoya that is absolutely amazing and starts in the water right in front of Thomas and Vigdis property. We took the night kayak tour and it was one of the highlights... More

Our time at Bahia Rica was absolutely wonderful! Thomas & Vigdis are superb hosts and provide unforgettable experiences of a lifetime. My husband would enthusiasticly insist that our off shore fishing trip took first place after catching a 7ft sailfish, but I would have to argue that the bioluminescent kayaking was tops! Vigdis prepared delicious meals and Thomas' Costa Rican... More

My girlfriend and I had scheduled a nighttime bioluminescence kayak tour here and it was the best $50 we spent in Costa Rica! I did a good amount of research trying to time the tides and the moon phase to ensure that our bioluminescence experience was a special one. I had no initial plans on coming to the Nicoya Peninsula... More

Beautiful grounds, fabulous hosts, great food, and in a location most don't stop for. One of our highlights of our Nicoya trips. Definitely do the monkey kayak, and plan on just spending time on the grounds! Great deal.

I can say without a doubt that the time we spent with Vigdis at Bahia Rica was one of our most memorable experiences in Costa Rica. I think that another visit to this beautiful country would not be complete without coming back here. We booked a half day kayak and the bio-luminescence tour. Vigdis went beyond and above every step... More
